    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (8)

      • Onscreen Factoid: (for Sugababes) 'Push the Button' is about Keisha's attempt to reveal a secret crush on one of her friends.

      • Onscreen Factoid: (for John Lennon - Instant Karma) This single was written, recorded and released in only ten days! It was produced by Phil Spector and featured George Harrison on guitar. Outside of 'The Beatles' this was the only time that John ever appeared on 'Top of the Pops'

      • Onscreen Factoid: (for Rachel Stevens) Rachel's favourite concert was when Simon and Garfunkel played at Hyde Park last year.

      • Onscreen Factoid: (for Stephen Fretwell) Stephen was inspired to write music after a friend of his dad's played him a Bob Dylan record.

      • Onscreen Factoid: (for Franz Ferdinand) Frontman Alex Kapranos has recently started writing a newspaper column as a food critic.

      • Onscreen Factoid: (for Katie Melua... or China, apparently) Including those 9 million bicycles in Beijing, China has 50% of the word's bicycles.

      • Onscreen Factoid: (for Mariah Carey) 'The Quo' might have been on Corrie, but our Mariah is a devoted fan of Eastenders.

      • Onscreen Factoid: (for Robbie Williams) Robbie played football with 'Coldplay' and 'Starsailor' at his LA home whilst working on his new album.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Richard: (referring to the John Lennon archive performance) What was Yoko doing holding up bits of card with random words written on it? I didn't get it.
        Fearne: Yeah, what was that on her head? Very odd! Now here's this weeks UK official singles chart.
        (as Fearne does her link Richard holds up a card with the word 'pants' on it)

      • Robbie Williams: (during his performance) In time and everything!

    • NOTES (4)

      • Not live: This episode was pre-recorded on 7th October 2005.

      • Mystery voice: Although Robbie Williams 'Tripping' was a repeat performance, there was an added piece of spoken dialogue where Robbie is joking about his timing during the song to the audience. This dialogue was not heard the first time the performance was shown two weeks ago.

      • New boss: From this episode onwards Andi Peters has been replaced as Executive Producer by Mark Cooper who is a long standing producer of BBC Music shows and events including the BBC's own coverage of various Glastonbury concerts.

      • Cut short: This episode is 30 minutes long (5 minutes shorter) in order to accommodate for a live snooker match at 1930. To achieve this only one archive performance is included, there's no preview of next weeks show and the Robbie Williams and Sugababes performances are cut short.
